According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in America. These disorders impact over 40 million adults in the US, which accounts for 18% of the population. The ADAA also states that “People with an anxiety disorder are three to five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders.”
Even more astounding is the 15 million cases in America of Social Anxiety Disorder according to the ADAA. According to this study, Cannabidiol (CBD) may be an effective treatment for those with anxiety, and specifically Social Anxiety Disorder. CBD was shown to reduce anxiety with Social Anxiety Disorder, however the study concluded that:
“Future clinical trials involving patients with different anxiety disorders are warranted, especially of panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorders. The adequate therapeutic window of CBD and the precise mechanisms involved in its anxiolytic action remain to be determined.”
It is interesting that studies like the one above were published in 2012, but very few reports of it surface in the media. It’s a shame that there is not more attention given to CBD for potential treatment of such issues like panic disorders, anxiety, PTSD, and more – despite them impacting millions of people daily.
